Hi
. I have installed bugzilla however it seems to me there is something wrong with the CGI config of your vhost, i

I have setup bugzilla at

http://www.profitgyan.com/bugzilla/index.cgi

However it opens the index.cgi and it shows the code instead of executing it, or it just shows a blank page.

The vhost file includes the following

<Directory /var/www/vhosts/profitgyan.com/httpdocs/bugzilla>
AddHandler cgi-script .cgi
AllowOverride All
Options ExecCGI
Order allow,deny
Allow from all

</Directory>

I have checked everything the log file shows the following:

[Sat Jun 21 21:26:33 2008] [error] [client 194.126.21.5] Premature end of script headers: index.cgi, referer: http://www.profitgyan.com/bugzilla/
[Sat Jun 21 21:31:33 2008] [error] [client 194.126.21.5] Premature end of script headers: index.cgi, referer: http://www.profitgyan.com/bugzilla/
[Sat Jun 21 21:31:36 2008] [error] [client 194.126.21.5] Premature end of script headers: index.cgi, referer: http://www.profitgyan.com/bugzilla/
[Sat Jun 21 21:31:40 2008] [error] [client 194.126.21.5] Premature end of script headers: index.cgi, referer: http://www.profitgyan.com/bugzilla/ 

I have checked
http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.0/howto/cgi.html#configuring


I even copied the files into the cgi-bin dir

http://www.profitgyan.com/cgi-bin/bugzilla/bugzilla/index.cgi

I.e. with bugzilla in the cgi-bin directory

[Sat Jun 21 21:52:28 2008] [error] [client 194.126.21.5] Premature end of script headers: index.cgi
[Sat Jun 21 21:52:35 2008] [error] [client 194.126.21.5] Premature end of script headers: index.cgi

Did you FTP the script from your PC?  If so, it's most likely it has windows end of line characters.

Either upload again in ASCII mode, or if you have command line access do:

dos2unix index.cgi

In the end it turned out that bugzilla and plesk are not that much of a great combination.
